Collaborative dinner and conversation with Françoise Vergès (Chaire Global South(s) du Collège d’études mondiales/FMSH) and Antariksa (historian, 2017 laureate of the research grant from Chaire Global South(s), Collège d’études mondiales/FMSH and co-founder KUNCI Cultural Center, Yogyakarta, Indonesia).

How does one contribute - as a researcher or as an institution- to the construction of a necessary decolonial thought of the narratives and the regions of the world? This long-term questioning, commonly found at both Villa Vassilieff art center and at the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme research center, unites politician Francoise Vergès and historian Antariksa at the third Night of Debates.
Registering at the heart of the Autohistorias program, that brings together the discursive exhibitions and projects from Bétonsalon - Center of art and research and from Villa Vassilieff in 2017 around the drive to “grasp the complexity of our social identities, to encourage the diversity of perspectifs and to redefine which voices should be heard - and to finally regain our institutions” (statement from Melanie Bouteloup, more information here), the conversation will be produced in different collective forms, with alternative narratives, using the experience of the cultural center KUNCI, co-founded by Antariksa in Yogyakarta (Indonesia) as a starting point.
